Wireless Networking at CASE
Case has completed the process of installing approximately
1500 Cisco Aironet
1200 series wireless access points (APs) across our network, along with the gigabit
network upgrades, as part of our Intgrated Technology Partnership with Sprint
and Cisco. The installed APs provide ubiquitous
wireless network coverage throughout CASE buildings.
The Case APs contain 802.11g radios, which allow wireless users to
connect at speeds up to 54Mbps.
Statistics for the installed APs are

Policy Regarding Use of Wireless Networking at CASE
Users are not permitted to set up their own wireless access systems on campus.
A wireless access system has significant impact on network security and operations.
Only wireless access systems installed and operated by ITS Technology
Infrastructure Services are permitted. Those who are interested in setting
up wireless access points must do so through Technology Infrastructure Services
using approved equipment. The coverage provided by the installed APs
is intended to be sufficient to eliminate the need for users to set up
their own wireless access systems.
